Atlanta Perl Mongers
PerlMongers Find new Meeting Place!
The trek through the desert is over! Atlanta Perl Mongers has a new venue at Cox Enterprises. We now meet on the 1st Thursday of the month. The lowdown on their next meeting is listed on their site at:
To recap: The grandfather of most of the modern open-source scripting languages has to be Perl. PHP was originally just a dialect of Perl.

(Note: all the camel jokes are due to the O'Reilly series of books on Perl which sport Camels on their covers).
